At Avalon College we run an extensive weekend activities program which is designed to be educational and fun. Students are involved in a range of activities on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. Activities include going to the movies, visiting the museum or the wildlife zoo, indoor rock climbing, shopping, dance classes, ten pin bowling, roller skating, watching international basketball and card nights.

A special part of our weekend program is our regular camping weekends. Approximately every two months we take students into the Australian bush for a weekend of camping and hiking. We sleep in tents, have a campfire and usually see wild kangaroos or koalas. This genuine Australian experience is an important part of our program as Australian children all experience camping and hiking through their primary and secondary schooling. Avalon College provides all the equipment needed for the camping weekend.
